He says people should feel free to tape their shows - aren't all the audience tapes still freely available?

Yes indeed they are, but people insist on interpreting JG's comments as carte blanche to share anything and everything. Mind you, I would be the last to complain about the folks who have brought us all these amazing soundboards over the years, but I'm sometimes amazed by the sense of entitlement, and especially by the oft-heard assumption that JG would be in favor of giving everything away. Nothing about his career suggests that this was the case - I think we would do well to remember that JG was an extremely ambitious working musician, and that he wanted to be paid for his work, the same as everybody else on the planet.

yeah, not to mention that he'd probably have another ex wife to support by now AND I'm 100% sure if given the choice between still being able to support longtime Dead family ( Ramrod, Parrish, etc ) he'd pick that over giving away stuff for free to us

yea, I didn't really mean to start this type of debate.
I just thought it was nice to hear Jerry being Jerry.
Laughed my ass off at his comments on dudes pot. And also
him realy thinking hard on whether or not they had ever
played Unbroken Chain. Classic Jerry; informative,
inviting, honest, stoned, and funny.

Thanks for posting; I'd never seen this around and it is always fun to listen to Jer kick back and shoot the shit. One thing that always comes through is his humor and intelligence (haven't yet listened to the Reed College interview posted yesterday).

Aside from his comments regarding taping, this inetrview is great.

In the 1st 5 tracks Jerry addressed Set-lists, venue size and transitional jamming. These topics, and the way the band approached them are the musical brush-strokes that set GD apart from other bands/artists.

Very interesting stuff.
